Health Information Interoperability: The Holy Grid

Health information interoperability is critical to the essential transformations in healthcare demanded by all stakeholders. More health data is generated now than at any other time, but it is grossly underutilized in healthcare and administrative processes. Many technical challenges exist as do gaps in industry cooperation and government consensus. The challenges of disparate data sources, lack of standardization, privacy concerns and regulatory hurdles are overwhelming, but so is the cost of continued fragmentation. Join us for a robust discussion of the financial impact, current barriers and presentation of new breakthrough solutions for health information interoperability on the horizon.

Informed Health IS the Business Model

Fragmentation equals inefficiency and excess cost. The current underutilization of health information accounts for billions of dollars lost or wasted annually. In the face of continued escalation of healthcare costs, Informed Health represents a model of fiscal viability. This discussion will explore the opportunities for cost saving, revenue growth, the metrics for ROI feature examples of how Informed Health can drive the bottom line.

Informed Health Applied: Precision Medicine

Precision medicine incorporates individual variability in genes, environment and lifestyle. Advances in precision medicine have been made at the research level. Realizing the power of precision medicine in clinical care and individual health choices will be dependent on interoperability to make the pertinent data available at the moment of decision making. Join experts as they discuss the challenges and illustrate the enormous potential power of clinical precision medicine.

Informed Health Applied: Extended Care –"Hospital-to-Home" and Telehealth

Healthcare is shifting to a more distributed model from clinics and hospitals to care in the home and community. As care moves into nonclinical settings, wearables and applications fuel the ability to extend care into new settings.To optimize care across all settings, pertinent and contextualized health information will need to be available to individuals as well as their care providers at the moment of decision making. Models of "hospital-to-home", telehealth and nonclinical care settings will be described.

Reimagine Imaging: Capture the Information, Not Just the Picture

Healthcare imaging has traditionally been a rich repository of data that has been markedly underutilized. The field is currently experiencing an explosion of possibility. Facilitated by informatics, new image capabilities are being explored, from remote image capture to computer aided recognition to associating image characteristics with biologic functions. These and other breakthrough processes are creating incredible opportunities and new challenges. Join us for this view into the new world of imaging and a robust discussion of the potential to tap this complex but nearly infinite source of health information.
